Summer is here – which means sunshine, the smell of freshly mowed grass, and some much-needed downtime is right around the corner. But as a business owner it’s much more than that. For some, the approaching summer translates to a slow and lean period. For others, business is booming.

Preparing Your Small Business for Success in 2022

Over the last several years, business owners have had to make major shifts in the way they operate, serve customers and cultivate relationships within their community – with their vendors and partners. And the reality is, small business owners will continue to face an uphill battle as COVID-19 challenges continue.

A record proportion of small business owners report they continue to have an extremely hard time hiring the workers they need to operate their businesses. In fact, according to National Federation of Independent Business’s (NFIB) monthly survey, 56% (93% of those hiring or trying to hire) of owners reported few or no qualified applicants for the positions they were trying to fill.

Often, the biggest challenges for small businesses are also the greatest opportunities. Read more on tips to help prepare your small businesses for success in 2022.

When Emily started Cibo Meals in 2016, her goal was to introduce her customers to new ingredients and exciting ethnic, international, and creative flavors. That mission quickly expanded in the months that followed to encompass sustainability and the prudent use of resources.

She believes our world would have a better, more sustainable future if every person ate at least two meat-free dinners each week. Livestock agriculture is a huge source of greenhouse gases, and commercial overfishing threatens to wipe out ecosystems and species.

At Cibo, they want to do their part to stop these trends by transforming dining tables in the Denver Metro area one meal at a time with their delicious, ready-to-eat, vegetarian meals.

Their focus on sustainability is directed inward too. Emily’s done her best to make every element of their company as ecologically neutral as possible. Read more here.
